What Twitter has taught me about librarians

*insert tongue in cheek disclaimer here*

  1. There are a lot of cat-owning librarians
  2. Librarians use the word ‘crafting’ as a verb
  3. Librarians like food: mainly cake, cheese and chocolate
  4. Librarians can be sarcastic to the point of being lemonfaced
  5. Librarians believe they have the best job in the word
  6. There’s lots of frustration at the inability of outsiders to understand the profession and what being a librarian entails
  7. Librarians will rip their own arm off and eat it to win a place at a conference and/or a free lunch
  8. Librarians could actually describe themselves more accurately as IT consultants, if they so wished
  9. Librarians are early adopters of new technology – I’m willing to bet that ipad and iphone ownership is pretty high among my professional colleagues.
  10. Librarians like blogs. They also like publicly slagging off blogs that they don’t like.
